Emergency Electronic Voting without a Meeting through October 15, 2020

Scheduled Membership Events through October 15, 2020

In addition to election season, we know PTAs are busy planning spring events and end-of-year celebrations. Now is the time to review contracts with vendors. You do not need a vote of the membership to cancel a fundraiser or event that you are no longer able or allowed by law to hold. If you have concerns or questions, please reach out to your Field Service Representative.

Texas PTA is closely monitoring developments released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the Coronavirus. There is a lot of information circulating and we defer to recommendations made by public health officials. Since this is a community-wide concern, we ask that our volunteers practice a heightened sense of personal health. Simple steps can prevent the spread of germs like frequent handwashing, avoiding touching your face, and social distance.

LAUNCH and Annual Meeting

Weighing the importance of leadership training against the current public health crisis, the Texas PTA Board of Directors has unanimously voted to move LAUNCH 2020 from July to October 16-18. We will be holding our most celebrated event of the year, just a couple months later than usual. Plan on joining us in October at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas. More information will be shared in the coming months including how to register.

Youth Empowered for Success (YES!)

Texas PTA has decided to cancel Youth Empowered for Success (YES!) for 2020. We thank the many students who applied to be a part of this immersive experience.

Camp Just Imagine

Texas PTA has decided to cancel Camp Just Imagine for 2020 to help our partnering school districts as they navigate statewide school closures and many unknowns. Camp Just Imagine will return next summer for Frozen KIDS and 101 Dalmatians KIDS. The show must go on! We'll see you then.
